Written for corporate real estate managers, this is a comprehensive practical guide to the selection, management, and disposal of corporate real estate properties in both the home and foreign countries. The author focuses on the management of the real assets of U.S.-based multinationals, although the discussion can be applied to multinational company management of worldwide real estate regardless of headquarters country. Among the key topics addressed are the ways in which a corporate real estate department can be most effectively organized, the need for computerization in the management of diverse properties in a variety of locations, leasing property, tax management, risk analysis and management, and real estate performance measurement. Throughout, the author includes details of the actual experiences of leading U.S. multinationals to illustrate the unique problems associated with various national and local real estate markets around the globe. Hines begins by offering some suggestions for corporate policy formulation aimed at guiding decisionmaking in the acquisition, development, and divestiture of property related to company operations. She addresses the lease-or-buy decision, demonstrating that the decision depends on the nature of the corporate real assets, the need for security, and the availability of funds. A separate chapter addresses the widely varying leasing conditions and terms that are encountered around the world. Since income, value-added, sales, withholding, and ad valorem property taxes affect country and site selections as well as company profitability, Hines provides an in-depth treatment of tax management from the perspective of the corporate real estate decisionmaker. Global real estate risk management also receives extended coverage. The final chapter shows how to measure real estate performance and demonstrates that global real estate holdings can and should be viewed as global portfolios with overall returns and risks--rather than as individual buildings with individual profit-and-loss profiles.
In March 1999, New York University Salomon Center in assocIatIOn with the Department of Finance at NYU Stern held a one-day conference on the impact of real estate cycles on the real estate industry both from a domestic as well as an international perspective. The conference featured the leading research on this topic in the United States, Europe and Asia. Currendy, the real estate industry is at a critical point. New development projects around the world are being put on hold given recent developments in the international capital markets. The industry is hard hit by the decline in real estate investment trust (REIT) share prices and a shrinkÂ ing pool of capital for real estate ventures. This has unfortunately coincided with serious financial problems of very large hedge funds and other institutional investors in the market for commercial mortgage backed securities. There is need for new insights into the implications of U. S. and global real estate cycles on real estate secuÂ rities including REITs and mortgage-backed securities as well as direct real estate investment. This global orientation is important given the high mobility of capital into the real estate, the increasing integration of real estate markets, and the proposed expanÂ sion of real estate investment trusts (REIT) into international real estate. The process of globalization has resulted in increased competition between cities for the attracÂ tion of investment.

The 6th IFAC Workshop on Algorithms and Architectures for Real-Time Control (AARTC'2000) was held at Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The objective, as in previous editions, was to show the state-of-the-art and to present new developments and research results in software and hardware for real-time control, as well as to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners, both from the academic and the industrial world.
The AARTC'2000 Technical Program consisted of 11 presented sessions, covering the major areas of software, hardware and applications for real-time control. In particular, sessions adressed robotics, embedded systems, modeling and control, fuzzy logic methods, industrial process control and manufacturing systems, neural networks, parallel and distributed processing, processor architectures for control, software design tools and methodologies, and SCADA and multi-layer control. A total of 38 papers were selected from high-quality full draft papers and late breaking paper contributions (consisting of extended abstracts). Participants from 15 countries attended the AARTC'2000 workshop.
The technical program also included two plenary talks given by leading experts in the field. Roger Goodall (Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Loughborough University, UK) presented "Perspectives on processing for real-time control," and Ricardo Sanz (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain), focused on "CORBA for Control Systems." Another highlight in the program was the final session on industrial presentations which was held in common with the Workshop on Real-Time Programming (WRTP'2000). In this session, Abel Jimenez (Industria de Turbo Propulsores S. A., Spain) presented the "Thrust Vectoring System Control Concept," Ulrich Schmid (Technische Universitat Wien, Austria) made a presentation with the title "Applied Research: A Scientist's Perspective," and Harold W. Lawson (Lawson Konsult AB, Sweden) addressed "Systems Engineering of a Successful Train Control System."
